I love silicone bake-ware. I was skeptical when I first saw ads for them on television. I was also skeptical about the floppy nature of the pans holding up structurally. However, having used the pans now, I plan to trade all of my metal bake-ware for silicon. The bake time decreases, which means you need to adjust the recipes accordingly, but otherwise they are great. There is no need to grease and flour before putting the batter into the pan and the bread or cake pops out perfectly!
The product says nothing about temperatures you can use the silicone at. Clearly it should. I was cooking my cheesecakes and within minutes my entire kitchen stunk! All the crust burned to a crisp and the mold melted out of it's shape. I was to afraid to use the mold again after that for fear that might be releasing chemicals. The product might work if not cooking on high temps, but the company should include some form of direction as to what are "safe to use at" temps.
